Nestle to Empower Cow Exploiters in UK

Nestle is proud to announce their Future Cow Harassers program in the UK.

Wait, fuck! That’s not what it says.

Ahem, Nestle is VERY proud to announce their Next Generation Dairy Leaders Program in the United Kingdom, a partnership between the supremely nasty corporation and poorly named Dairy farmers group, First Milk (I’ll hold all my First Milk jokes for another time. The vegan fruit is so low hanging there that I feel a certain amount of shame going for it this early on in my career).

“Throughout the course the attendees will attend a series of events to learn about dairy industry politics, advanced farm management, financial management and effective communication to provide them with the practical tools and confidence to step forward and take a lead,” says First Milk. Participants will take part in a two year course to learn the ins and outs of industry propaganda and how to best defend themselves against vicious animal rights activists such as my very humble self.

Says the “Responsible Sourcing Lead” Milk Buyer Robin Sundaram, “We are very excited about this new initiative that takes the sustainability journey we are on with our farmers to a new level. We believe that this will enable our farmers to get a much wider perspective of the dairy industry and importantly the role their milk plays in the Nestlé supply chain.” Something tells me that Robin’s role has been quite an adventure over the past few years, as the decidedly un-sustainable dairy industry has come under fire for the massively negative effects they have on the environment.

As a nice palate cleanser, here’s some news about pro-vegan UK happenings.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
